Multiplication charts are a really easy way to visualize the times tables. This free 12×12 multiplication chart printable is very colorful and will look great either hung on the wall or added to a student binder for easy reference.
If you are going through the pain of learning math facts with your kids, I really feel you.
It has taken us years to actually “get it”. But I definitely put this down to adding a multiplication grid on his bedroom wall.
We also used to have a copy on the kitchen table. That way, when he was eating breakfast we would do some “quick math”. Incorporating multiplication skills into everyday life is the best way to learn them.
It is fun to find the patterns in the colorful multiplication charts too. In fact, my son would sit in bed and try to find them.

How to use a multiplication table chart?
Multiplication charts work like bingo sheets, where the number inside of each box represents the product of the corresponding column and row.
So the horizontal row multiplied by the vertical row will give an answer as can be seen below.
For example 2×3=6, 4×2=8, 6×6=36.
Now that you understand how the chart works, you can get the kids to fill in each box with the number that is equal to the product of the corresponding column and row.
